U.S. forces pounded insurgent targets in several parts of Iraq Tuesday, while Shi'ite militiamen turned in more weapons for cash in Baghdad's Sadr City.
In Fallujah, considered a hub of insurgent activity, U.S. warplanes bombed buildings believed to be used by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's terror network, including a well-known restaurant. At least four Iraqis were killed.
In the western city of Ramadi, U.S.-backed Iraqi troops raided at least seven mosques to search for insurgents and illegal weapons. They also arrested the region's top Sunni Muslim cleric, Sheikh Abdul Aleim Saadi.
Meanwhile, in the Baghdad slum of Sadr City, militiamen loyal to radical Shi'ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr continued to hand over their weapons. They have until Friday to exchange guns and ammunition for cash.
